SUPER STOOP

Can design for private homes build urban communities? Furthering ISA’s collaboration with Postgreen Homes, this project creates street-level social spaces defined by a super stoop – a sequence of generous entry platforms navigating grade changes, entry stairs, and basement windows, and featuring fabricated metal handrail panels designed by artist Jenny Sabin. The project spans a dense cluster of 31 units of a variety of typologies – single family townhomes, duplexes, and two small apartment buildings – and is as intentional about social spaces as it is energy efficient.
